U.S. officials believe ISIS planted bomb on Russian plane

Exactly my original thoughts.

 The latest U.S. intelligence suggests that the crash of a Russian passenger jet in the Sinai over the weekend was most likely caused by a bomb on the plane planted by ISIS or an ISIS affiliate, according to a U.S. official familiar with the matter. 

But the official stressed a formal conclusion has not been reached by the U.S. intelligence community. 

"There is a definite feeling it was an explosive device planted in luggage or somewhere on the plane," the official, who is familiar with the latest U.S. intelligence analysis of the crash, told CNN.

  1. Why would the Russians be denying that? That is the last I had heard anyway.

  2. Who cares what US or UK says. I am waiting to hear what Putin says.

    1. Obama and Putin, what a joke. We have a pussy and Russia has a man.

  3. No wonder the US and UK are quick to come to a conclusion. Anything to attack
    Putin with. And then there is Israel right there on the border with a major military base.
    Meanwhile, media is claiming that if it is proved to be a bomb, it will damage Putin s global reputation for security. Not sure how Egyptian airport security will damage Putin s reputation, unless the media forces that meme.
    For Mr Putin, whose domestic support rests on the twin pillars of economic and national security, a successful strike by Isil against an airliner full of middle class Russians on their way back from an Egyptian holiday will represent a significant blow to his prestige

    1. I wouldn't change one word in your comment. Thanks.
